CF to 1.8 ZIF CF Adapter

Now it's time to look for a cheap and fast 32GB CF. :D

I have a n95 with 8GB MicroSDHC. I had Windows mobile phone before (6515), and I can't stand it. For making phone calls, it felt like using a computer to make a simple phone call. Smartphone is much easier for doing so. For all the phone I have, N95 gave me the best video experience ever on any phon...

If you try to put files more than 512MB, it will crash. Google "Fake Memory stick" and u will find pictures on how to tell. I think eBay has come up wi...

After trying out a cheap ipod 80GB MK8010GAH with no luck, I decided to get MK1011GAH OEM drive. Upgraded my UX280P few days ago without any problem. I have to clone my new drive using my Sony HardDrive camcoder as an external enclosure for the new drive as I haven't got my new 1.8" enclosure. I fou...

don't do it. Apparently drives inside ipod is protected. I remember seeing the same thing few years ago with Ipod Mini. It dis-allowed ppl re-use the CF Micro-Drive on digital cameras. I just tried a 80GB (Gen 5.5 Ipod) and it won't work because u can not re-partition it. http://www.micropctalk.com/...

Should have made this sticky.
I tried and failed too. Mine is a MK8010GAH. As long as you try to access the partition information. It will stop you from going further. :(


Tried XP install, UX restore, Partition Magic 8, etc.
I guess Vista/linux is the next try.
